Hot Tip! A handy check list before you get rid of old devices

This month’s Hot Tip looks at what you need to do if you’re planning to replace your computer or device anytime soon. It’s super important to remove any data and anything that might be traceable to you. Here’s a handy check list…

  1. Create a Backup
  2. Clean the Hard Drive
  3. Wipe External Drives
  4. Delete Browsing History
  5. Uninstall Programmes
  6. Encrypt all Files
  7. Destroy drives


For more info on preparing your old computer for disposal check this out.

Once you’ve cleaned out the data you’ll need to physically dispose of the hardware, and here’s a local (Upper Hutt) option for you, rather than leaving it to clutter up your store room or garage.  You could also consider what else you can do with it (but be warned that this link is probably aimed at geeks and gamers)
